This midtown spin-off offers the same menu of American brasserie fare (steaks, salads, pastas) as the East Village original. Take a seat at the L-shaped zinc bar and choose from dishes like the "Brooklyn-style" calamari (crispy fried squid with marinara) or a thick burger topped with cheddar and bacon. You'll also find raw-bar plates, like East and West Coast oysters, scallop ceviche and Lobster Louie—a seafood salad with a spicy and creamy dressing.
